Bollywood Actors And The Roles They Turned Down!



There are Bollywood actors who secretly aspire to join Hollywood….while there are others who like it at home and are not willing to join the global cat race.

Then there are actors and actresses who get ready to do a thirty second cameo and some who only settle for the main lead.

Whatever the case in the past some very meaty roles have been offered to our superstars which they have turned down, for reasons best know to them.

Read on more:

1. Shah Rukh Khan

 Slumdog Millionaire

SRK was first offered the role which Anil Kapoor plays in this Oscar winning movie. His loss was Anil’s gain as Hollywood sat up and opened the doors for him.

2. Deepika Padukone

Furious 7

Imagine watching Deepu in Furious 7. But it was not to happen, she turned down the role and instead opted for Happy New Year. Secretly, we are sure she must be regretting it.

3. Akshay Kumar

 Untitled movie co-starring Dwayne Johnson

Akshay and action go hand in hand. His stunts can be compared to any leading action man in Hollywood. So when he was paired against Dwayne Johnson, it looked look like the perfect pairing. But Akshay got cold feet and decided to stick to Indian fans.

4. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan


This was a pairing of a lifetime, Brad Pitt with Aish. It surely would have created history. But the lady turned it down, as the idea of getting cosy with Brad did not appeal to her.

5. Ronit Roy

 Zero Dark Thirty

Another massive opportunity lost. Ronit was offered a meaty role in the Oscar wining movie Zero Dark Thirty, but he chose it over SOTY.  Need we say more?

Here’s a video of eight B-town stars who rejected incredibly successful movie roles:
